Good morning! It's Monday and I'm fine with that because it's not a school day!!
I have a little card for you this morning, I was playing with some new ink yesterday, I got me some more of my fave Distress inks, Frayed Burlap was one of them! I paired it with some pumpkin spice SU ink for this card. I cut out the jar shape from a piece of kraft card and then I used the negative as a frame for my jam jar which I had stamped on cream card stock.
I have some cut files for the jar Fillers Jam Packed set and you can get them here.
There are files for the Jar as a candy Jar, as a jar with screwtop lid, as a jar with fabric lid, and for the label and the tiny tag.
I have a few hints on how to use them here.
I cut myself out a jar with fabric lid shape - and I stamped on the fabric lid first - above. If you set the cut-out shape on a dark background it is much easier to stamp on. Next thing was to stamp the fabric lid again onto a post-it note and trim it out. This is your mask, and It's worth making a fairly good one, cut out accurately, you can keep it in with your stamps for further use, you can get quite a lot of mileage out of it and I rarely have to make another.
Below you can see the mask in place and how I stamped the jar base over it. I purchased some of those thin acrylic blocks - Tim holtz make them I believe, and I thought they were great for lining up stamps, but I did worry that they might snap if I had to put a lot of pressure on, time will tell and I'll let you know!
It was easy to line up the 'jam' stamp with the thin blocks, I stamped it before I took off the mask above. One full jar of jam, ready for use!
Hope it tickles!
